OK, Bag Monster is a moronic name, but Monster has become a catch-all phrase for "Hey, this will help you do something" This section will help you find the bags you're looking for (like you're really looking for them). Leaving everything blank will retrieve a list of all bags, however that may cause the page to load slowly.

Jenny Farrell

Approximate Vintage: 2005
Received From: Mary Cabrall
Background / Bag Color: White
Although only a sticker on a bag, and therefore less desirable, the sticker is clearly meant to be affixed to a barf bag. The genesis of this bag is the reality show "Nashville Star" in which contestant Jenny Farrell doubled over, put her hand over her mouth, and ran offstage during her performance in order to puke. These bags were distributed at a subsequent party thrown by Brett Michaels. whoever that is.

Mary Cabrall, the source of this bag made sure to urge me to "keep it country". Good advice indeed!

This bag features 5 different colors in the Jaws of Life logo.

Jersey European

Interesting mutant Pac-Man logo. I really don't know the date of this bag, but I assume that they went to one color printing to save money, thus later than the previous bag.

Nice use of space and margins

Whoa! The flying egg logo was added.

Jet Airways

A radical departure for Jet includes the soothing cloud background.

Same font as always, but Jet Airways updates its color scheme.

Jet Aviation

Approximate Vintage: 1998
Received From: Stephan Forte
Print or Image Color: Red and Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
The logo looks like the tail of a plane with antlers.

Jet Blue

Approximate Vintage: 2006
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: Navy
Almost generic, but not quite. The bottom boasts the horribly corporate www.ipacksolution.com

Jet Star

Approximate Vintage: 2009

OMG, this is soooo generic looking. And no, it's not intended for nausea that may occur reading the popular magazine, Jet.

Jet4You

I don't know much about Jet4you.com, but it appears to be a French bag that says, "The lowest price for everyone"

JetLite

Background / Bag Color: Blue, White
Cool Indian Bag that hopes you're feeling better. Very light blue coloring reminiscent of Air Dolomiti.

Jetstar Naked

Approximate Vintage: 2013
Received From: David Shomper
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: White
This excellent bags says, "Feeling a little queasy? Get Naked (when you get home!)"

The bag goes on to try to make the case that Naked brand ginger is going to help ease your air sickness (after you have safely landed and have already made your way home). They go on to include all sorts of wacky copy including mention of Botticelli and the Birth of Venus. They also wax nostalgic about Marco Polo and his relation to ginger. There are all sorts of long-shot associations including a recommendation to "Make delicious ginger beer at home". Plus as a bonus, there's a word search.

None of this has anything to do with throwing up on a plane, but it's all entertaining nonetheless.

Jetstar Pacific

Approximate Vintage: 2017

Print or Image Color: Orange
Background / Bag Color: White, Orange
Nice orange bag with a one-armed person throwing paper away in a trash can. The bag says CHI DUNK KAI NON.

This beauty was distributed as a funny protest of Fashion Week 2007. Read about the stunt here in New York City. The bags say, "Celebrity, Sex, Fashion. Without Airbrushing." Originally, the bags contained Ex-Lax, tongue depressors, and Tic-Tacs, but unfortunately, the Ex-Lax was gone from the bag I obtained. A winner!

Jinair

Approximate Vintage: 2010
Received From: Rainer Schwartz
Print or Image Color: White, Green
Background / Bag Color: Green, White
A very subtly colored light-green and white bag with a cool Escher-like butterfly airplane logo. Nobody over 50 years old can possibly read the text on the back because of the extremely poor contrast.

JMC

Approximate Vintage: 2000
Received From: Andy Rudge
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Lime Green
This is one of the studliest bags to come along in a while. The toxic looking bag says, "Sick as a ...". Next to that is an abstract drawing of an inchworm with a cowlick. Now that's exactly the image you want your airline to portray -- an inchworm -- the paragon of speed and efficiency. Furthermore, the bottom of the bag warns that "This bag may contain bio-hazardous waste after use". Really? What kind of food is JMC serving anyway?

Bagmeister Ian Brown corrects me by writing, 'Your JMC Air Bag description describes the critter as an inch worm. It's actually a parrot. It's due to an English phrase "As sick as a parrot". I don't know where the phrase comes from, it could be a reference to Monty Pythons dead parrot sketch.' Pretty arcane representation of a parrot if you ask me.

Almost identical to the 2000 version except the instructions now span two lines instead of one. I'm sure there's a good reason for this that I don't understand, but that's probably why I'm a failure in business.

Juneyao

Great Dragon-in-oval logo. Doing it's best to distance themselves from barf, they surreptitiously leave the fine Juneyao name off the bag.
